Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal Bake

I don't know about you but this busy on the go mama does not have time to atop and fix a breakfast every morning or clean up dishes. I often turn to my on the go protein packed super-foods shake on the go but to change things up I tried this and having a some good fiber filled carbs with it and OMG. 

It smells like happiness and it tastes EVEN better! 

This has stayed in the fridge for 10 days and I have been alternating it and it is still perfectly awesome just heated in the microwave for 20 seconds. I love to melt a little butter, add some salt, coconut sugar and cinammon and drizzle it over! 

For the kids of a special treat you could even make a little icing drixxle with a bit of powdered sugar. Seriously though this was so easy to throw together and you likely have all the ingredients already!

Sweet Potato Pancakes

I LOVE being part of an online community of ladies who are like minded working on their fitness like me. Not to say we are perfect, we share our successes and struggles but we also follow the same meal plan and share recipes! 

One of the ladies posted a sweet potato pancake and I thought WOW what an amazing idea. Sweet potatoes are the most nutrient dense carbs you can eat. I am always looking for new ways to have them hence all of the recipes on here featuring them. 

This one deserves a special spot in your recipe collection! Kids and adults love them and if you would like to make these Sneaky pancakes you can absolutely add baby spinach to these and get in an extra veggie for you and the kids! 

These are sweet enough without maple syrup so for me it is just a teaspoon of melted butter on top... YES... butter is ok! We all need healthy fats. I know some people still can get past it but I promise...coming from the lady who lost 50 lbs and has kept it off real butter is ok to eat. If you are still eating butter from the tub PLEASE do yourself a favor and ditch it! With all the love in the world STOP. If it is man made I want you to think Chemical SH!T storm. K.... OK.

I love to double this recipe because they go quick! This recipe serves 4 3-4 pancakes per serving depending on the size you make them! 

For those who follow Portion Fix - 1 Red, 1 Yellow, 1 tsp ( if you add spinach this would also be a green and perfect as a pre or post workout meal for 80-day obsession)

INGREDIENTS 

  • 2 cups of cooked mashed Sweet Potato
  • 8 Eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon of Pure Maple Syrup
  • 2 packets Stevia
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of salt 
  • Coconut oil spray or Olive oil spray

DIRECTIONS

  1.  Heat skillet or preferable a griddle to medium heat ( not too high or they will burn.)
  2. Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth
  3. spray skillet with coconut oil spray or olive oil spray, then pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto skillet. 
  4. The batter is runny so pour slowly and allow to set up before flipping

These would be wonderful with sliced banana and drizzle of melted Almond or PB over them, and don't forget they can be sneaky by adding in that spinach which I often do because who doesn't need to sneak extra veggies in!

Honey Mustard Chicken

I love a fast east dinner! I used to eat these Rold Gold pretzels that were honey mustard flavor..basically, I am a sucker for anything honey mustard! 

This recipe I baked in the oven it was so easy to mix, make and go! Next time I will for sure throw them on the grill because this was good but I bet it would be a million times better grilled. Now that the weather is nicer I am definitely having it!

CONTAINERS- 1 orange 1 red

INGREDIENTS 

  • 4 Boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup honey or 1/4 cup honey and 1 packet of stevia 
  • 1/4 cup of yellow mustard
  • 1/4 Dijon mustard 
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika ( regular works great too)
  • salt and pepper to taste I use about 1/4 tsp salt
  • Olive oil spray

DIRECTIONS

  1.  If using the oven Preheat to 350, spray a baking dish with olive oil spray, set aside
  2. In a bowl combine honey, mustard, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, garlic, and paprika 
  3. Toss chicken and sauce together then place all the sauce and chicken in the prepared dish.
  4. Bake for 30 min turn chicken and bake for 10 more min

( if using thinner chicken please reduce cooking time to about 25 min) 

For grilling, I usually cut the larger chicken lengthwise in half and cook about 10-12 min until done allowing them to rest on the counter for a few min before cutting into them otherwise you will lose all of your juices.
